Gull-billed Terns

There are actually images from two trips here, but one of the trips both are in flight, so I thought I’d put them all in the same post. The group at Thorneside shows one...

Great Knot, Red Knot

These birds are quite similar, but the Great Knot is a little bigger than the Red Knot, and the red has chevron shaped marks on the chest, while the great has more dash-like marks....

Common Greenshank

Amongst a whole lot of shorebirds, this one solitary different one (well, of this species), another new bird for my list!

Blue-faced Honeyeater

I know I already have some lovely photos of these birds, but not one with a tongue out like this! The brush-tipped tongue is for nectar. Or left over fruit and pancakes.
